Okay, so getting a divorce is never easy. And going through the divorce process during a world pandemic is certainly no walk in the park. HOWEVER… I have found that clients of mine have recognised some benefits to the change in the “normal way of doing things”.
Here are 4 positives of navigating your way through divorce at the moment:
1. Divorce is still possible.
Legal professionals and the courts are still working, albeit remotely. Your case can still progress, with minimal delay. You don’t have to wait until the end of the pandemic to start/progress things. This can be reassuring to know. It’s business as usual for divorce professionals.
2. No travel time.
Your meetings with me, your solicitor, your mediator and any court hearings can take place via Zoom, so you don’t have to worry about finding and parking at offices or the court building. This can save you time and stress. And no need to wear a mask!
3. Less formality.
Meeting your solicitor or having your mediation sessions online can feel a bit less formal and so more relaxed. You’re in the comfort of your own home. This can help you to feel calmer and more confident in the meetings, putting you in the best position possible to deal with the meeting itself.
4. More human.
Meetings via video can help humanise legal professionals, helping you to find them more approachable. You get a glimpse of their home in the background of the screen, perhaps see their uninvited dog/cat wander across the screen or perhaps hear their doorbell ring with a delivery. It’s real life stuff which can be reassuring when you might be a bit nervous.
